>From linux/device/char/pc_keyb.c:

* Some x86 BIOSes do not correctly initializes the keyboard, so the
* "kbd-reset" command line options can be given to force a reset.
* [Ranger]
#ifdef __i386__
int kbd_startup_reset __initdata = 0;
int kbd_startup_reset __initdata = 1;

I couldn't boot 2.1.xx kernels (during boot machine got rebooted)
till somebody pointed me that seting kbd_startup_reset to 1 might help.
And it did.

I hope this will help someone.
